Society has historically devised different means to harness energy in its various forms for diverse uses, including deep interactions with food. Much of history can be viewed through this lens.
Today, the production, distribution, consumption and storage of energy and food has spawned a web of interconnected systems. At MODL we apply computational modeling tools to analyze the behaviors in these systems, namely: fossil fuels, food systems, and electricity. Sustainability and climate change are critical. Thus, we seek intersections in policy among both traditional and alternative energy sources, with a view to reducing or eliminating environmental impacts and improving public outcomes.
